We are: respectful, responsible, hopeful, friendly, truthful and we persevere.
Hawkesley Church Primary Academy converted to become an academy on 1 June 2013. In March 2015, our academy was inspected under section 5 of the Education Act 2005 and was judged to ‘require improvement’. In June 2015, our academy received a Requires Improvement monitoring visit under section 8 of the Education Act 2005 our HMI (inspector) judged that senior leaders and governors are taking effective action to tackle the areas requiring improvement identified by Ofsted in March 2015.
Hawkesley Church Primary Academy received a further inspection in June 2017. Inspectors recognised the improvements the academy had made since its previous inspection.
The headteacher, ably supported by the deputy headteacher, has ensured that teaching and behaviour have improved since the last inspection.
Leadership of the early years and that for supporting pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities, have improved over the past two years.
Disadvantaged pupils are making better progress this year than previously.
Pupils attained well last year in the Year 1 phonics (letters and the sounds they represent) screening check, and continue to do so this year.
Staff are effective in their work in supporting pupils to make the best behavioural choices. They provide time and strategies for pupils to think for themselves and make their own decisions.
The school’s work to keep pupils safe is effective.
Our Academy transferred to the Birmingham Diocesan Academies Trust on 1st September 2018.
